The budget and redistricting will take up much of today's Wake County school board work session.
The meeting agenda calls for spending two hours to review Superintendent Tony Tata's budget proposal. You might start seeing more discussion about what would be targeted if the state funding cut is more than the 5 percent that Tata used to build his budget.
The school board will spend an hour getting an update on the redistricting process. Groups such as the League of Women Voters of Wake County and the Great Schools in Wake Coalition have accused the board of not acting transparently when it comes to drawing up new election boundaries.
The work session starts at 1 p.m. in the board conference room, 3600 Wake Forest Road in Raleigh.
But first, a special meeting has been called for noon so the board can meet in closed session to discuss personnel issues and consult with their attorneys. They're scheduled to come out in open session for personnel appointments.
